Tenerife, Spain, is a grand jewel when it comes to Spanish vacations.
The island brings in a little over 10 million tourists a year, and is probably most well-known for its more southern resorts that offer up British/Spanish infused experience consisting of amazing club experiences and beautiful white sandy beaches, all wrapped up in an all-inclusive resort package.
However, if you are looking for a little bit more than just a typical tourist traps, you can brush aside the curtains of tourist over and discover an incredibly deep and rich island culture.
The perfect blend of island experiences also includes leaping between worlds such as long walks the tropical forests during the morning, followed by shopping at designers stores in the afternoon and it sure need to volcanic lava at the carnival celebration but sits second only to that held in Rio. And if all of the nightlife sounds just a little too much, there are also plenty of museums, temples and modern art to take in, as well as the snow peaked Pico del Teide mountain, which is actually Spain's tallest mountain and is home to some of the country’s best hiking. Tenerife really does have a little bit of something for everyone.
When you are trying to decide when to take your trip to Tenerife, you should keep in mind that even though December to February can be pretty warm, areas near El Teide can get pretty cold and even experienced snowfall the closer you get to the mountain. March to April is the perfect time if you're looking to take in some hiking or wildflower hunting. Also, if you are surfer marches can be your ideal time to take in everything Tenerife has to offer.
The summer months (May to September) provide nearly 11 hours of sunshine a day, with an average temperature of 28 C, making it one of the most ideal times soak in the beach life.
A sight of historical significance for tourists looking to absorb some of Tenerife's culture is Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion. Built in 1502, this is one of the islands oldest churches, and as such it has gone through many different changes. However, it still has elements of Gothic styles can still be seen, as well as some of the Islamic style architecture.
There is also the Auditorio de Tenerife, which is the site of architectural significance. It is a shame soaring wave of an auditorium and was designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The auditorium holds a Sydney Opera House type presence, to provide superb acoustics. Even if you do not have time to take in a performance at the auditorium, you should at least consider venturing to it and having a drink at the café located within the wide open space of the main entrance, you can even take a stroll around the entirety of the building and truly enjoy and absorb the architectural wonder of the building.
